Builders Club Only Places (commonly known as BC Only Places) was a feature added on December 30, 2010. It allowed members of Builders Club, Turbo Builders Club, and Outrageous Builders Club members to make their place available only to members with premium membership.

If a user would search for a BC game (Ex: Sandbox BC) they will see a BC hard hat icon at the corner, which means that the place is BC only.

Popular BC Only places were shown at the top of the Game Page. (Now no longer used, leading to a very large decline in BC-Only places.)

An update on October 30, 2017 made all premium places available to all players, effectively discontinuing the feature, in order to "open up the possibility of gaining (and retaining) more users along with earning more revenue", according to NightgaladeId[1]. Luckily, Seranok has took the announcement that BC Only Places were officially removed, because some users were very happy about this removal.

BC Only Places

These places were added for BC members only, in both online and solo mode. These places would pay the place owner 10 tickets for every visit. In the Forums, ReeseMcBlox told users to make another place for Non-Builders Club members.

If the user was not in Builders Club and attempts to join a BC Only Place, a message would pop up, saying,

An example of a BC Only place.

"You need Builders Club for this! Builders Club membership is required to play in this place."

Generally, good BC Only Places had a near-identical or identical non-BC (or NBC) place.

Removal from front page

In June 2015, the BC Only Places section on the games page was removed. Shortly after, Shedletsky announced the reason being they made no profit from them. The reason was that the owners of BC places had an NBC copy so people would just play the all members place, thereby maximizing the owner's profit.


Forum reception

The feature was poorly received, because of the way admins spoke about NBC players and the issue, causing mass protests of the feature by non-premium players. Ironically, many (T/O)BC members also protested about the feature, even with a few noteworthy protests by OBC stickmasterluke regarding the issue. The whole issue created hundreds of pages of discussion in the ROBLOX forums. The first night after the release, MrDoomBringer banned some users who were protesting the feature.

Many protests of the new feature called BC only games "Jim Blox" and "Segregation at its finest".

Other reception

The comments on a game give a more reliable view of the general public opinion of this feature, because people are more likely to use the forums if they are angry. Generally, other reception of the new feature was mixed, with about 50% negative and 50% mixed/positive. Many noted that they don't have an opinion on the feature but didn't like the reaction of the negative crowd.

Some users, such as SharpTH, made YouTube videos, in which SharpTON's was a ROBLOX version of a Tom and Jerry movie scene, where Builderman took place while saying "We got to have...Money...".
